I’ve Said Things (A Fight) by Janine Marley

I’ve said things

Things no human being should ever say
Things no one should even think
Things that would make my grandmother (even my mother) blush.
And I know he feels them
Every thought
Every word
Every spiteful bit of myself that gets flung at him.
Right now, I don’t even care
My feelings are mine
My feelings are my truth
My feelings should matter to someone shouldn’t they?
And forgiveness is a foreign concept
I can’t right now
I won’t tomorrow
But maybe I’ll have to some day
Not for him
For me.
